Superb Food with Relaxing Ambiance

I have waited ten years to equal the best Tagine ever (Millau,France), and last week I had it at Al Yamal. A really nice atmosphere. I think I have said enough. Sublime.

It's a very bijou but characterful restaurant. Dishes are cooked individualy to order; we had some flat bread and hummus U for starters and 2 wonderful couscous tagines between 7 of us. The flavours were wonderful; mildly spiced and fruity the restaurant owner couldn't do enough for us, bringing sharing plates and an iced herb liquor to finish with along... More

We had a great experiance at the Al yamal! The owner was really nice, helping us decide what we wanted to eat and the food was yummy! Sitting in a mystic atmosphere was the icing on the cake. You should really check it out ;)

Restaurant al-yamal is not only about delicious food. It is about a welcoming and warm experi ence. I believe that the oweners want to revive the good spirit of hospitality that existed in Al-Andalus. Food was amazingly delicious, the ambience worm and cozy, and pedro our host was very generous and kind. He gave us advice about the food to... More

Wow - the most amazing food I have tasted in Spain . Such a nice service . The atmosphere transports you to a cliche morroco . I ordered a paprika salad and chicken cuscus . It was just perfect . The owner also gave me some gravy which added a bit of spice . Definitely coming back .

I visited Al Yamal on the basis of Tipadvisor reviews. I would certainly reinforce the positive feedback. The restaurant is small but welcoming. The service is friendly and helpful. The food is tasty and portions are generous. I had the mixed cous-cous, which was hearty and delicious. I would certainly go back

After two weeks of tapas we needed a break. Our meal at Al-yamal was the perfect respite. We had the lamb kebab, humus and paprika salad. The humus is made fresh to order and comes with fresh, warm pita bread. All the entrees were delicious. For main we shared vegetable cous cous and chicken tagine, both of which were fantastic....
